Miss Littlewood

Book, music and lyrics by Sam Kenyon

This musical about Joan Littlewood’s life story is told with her own uncompromising honesty and reveals a mighty love story at its heart.

One woman with a revolution to stage

Anti-establishment, visionary, rude and glorious, Joan Littlewood fired the imagination of a generation. Based on her life story, Sam Kenyon’s musical charts the emotional highs and lows of Joan’s journey from The East End to the West End.

Joan Littlewood was the anarchic revolutionary of 20th century theatre. Her unique Theatre Workshop was responsible for a raft of successes including Oh, What A Lovely War!, and breathed new life into the Theatre Royal Stratford East.

Told with her own uncompromising honesty, this musical reveals a mighty love story at its heart. Miss Littlewood played in the Swan Theatre in summer 2018.
